Dining table doodles – fat cat!

And, bonus shots of my current favorite tea: Lupica’s Momo Oolong.

During my flight back from Los Angeles today, the stranger in the center seat chatted me about Sociallist. (The dear side project I won’t shut up about; I was drawing frames during that terrible few minutes of no electronics ;)
He loved the idea and pitched one of his own to me: a vinyl app. Intriguing…
The best part? Turns out he wasn’t an ideas guy, but simply a guy who’s been traveling the world for the last decade enroute to Yosemite National Park. Has no stake in this industry.
It was clear he had a great grasp of the vinyl world (for the record, I know nothing about vinyl, pun intended) since it was enough to get me to sketch up his thoughts.
That was refreshing. The 1:25 flight passed very quickly as a result. A conversation between strangers who came from different worlds united by an inkling of wanting to create. No ulterior motives aside from a fleeting connection.
I parted with knowledge of his whereabouts for the summer and he parted with my sketch.

tech industry: how recruiters view designers

Recruiters-on-designers

Just for shits and giggles. I also miss the good ol’ meme days with my project team. Credit is where credit is due: thank @whoischrislam for the idea and fuel to make this one happen.

Happy Birthday to my little brother. | with a stupid meme filled card to boot

Manyshits

I give many shits about him (It just means I care except in angsty rebelious 16 year old terms).

That is all. We have a very awesome sibling bond as of date.

More Sketch! | Colorful Cute Photoshop Stickfigures

Connie-sketches-for-internets Inspiration strikes at midnight and I finally bring a best friend’s* personal project to a close. It was fun thinking of ideas to make.. And though the assembly (aka design dirty work) took way longer than anticipated, it was worth the while. Paying it forward and flexing a creative muscle is time well spent.
Unfortunately, the project itself shall remain a *secret* .. but here’s the source file for the sketches in all of its sketchy and cmyk palette glory.


* I don’t really have a “best friend” from childhood. She’s one of the 3 friends who has stood the test of time and infrequent communication.. Being able to pick off right where we left off.

Also - new apartment is coming together.. Not quite ready to show it off in full, but am happy to show off some desk shots :)

I find that I like working w/ just the Thunderbolt display alone. Less screens to be distracted by.

..

Finally feeling like I’m getting into the flow, though I may be uprooted soon by the holidays. Well - that’s life. No more semesters for me, just a continuous stream of everything. It’s an adjustment I still haven’t completely made yet to be honest.

Latest iPad Sketches & I’m still alive here

Darkness Dig

I doodled these with my stylus and fingers on a flight back from Austin. I am currently drafting a big ass post about the documenting the working life and thoughts on recent events.. but for now, I just wanted to let the internet know I’m not dead and attempt to get myself posting here regularly again.

See look,

POST IDEAS

I promise I’m still thinking about ideas!

Sketch/Fanart: Finn and Bubblegum

In case of creative stagnation, draw fanart. Shiny, shiny fanart.

Sidenote: I actually do think Adventure Time is quality stuff.

Photoshop Painting! > Out of Tune Squeaky Toy

Lolkaraoke
LOOK GUYS I CAN STILL COLOR OKAY. LIGHTING AND COLORS AND STUFF.

Also, this is pretty much true. I do, in fact, sing like an out of tune squeaky toy, except in the shower. Good thing he sings like a god :)

First doodle from February immediately following a CS5 upgrade. (old, but not yet posted!)

the great sea

After a not-so-successful search to find a nice Wind Waker wallpaper, I decided the best idea was to draw my own. This is what happens after a combination of oggling at good art, being drawing deprived, and listening to ocr zelda songs all night.

Don’t know how you feel about it, but sailing across the Great Sea was really theraputic.
